I believe we are on our third winter storm warning for the month of april... in two weeks we managed to get more snow than we have all winter. Not only are we sick of it, but its putting me way back on my working out. For you see I can only workout outside. My apartments too small to work out inside and I can't afford a gym membership. I am a runner ( a slow runner but its not the speed its the distance) and I neeeed to run. I unfortunately do not have the equipment to run in the winter. And even if I did its too dangerous with the storms. :/ I'm praying it goes away soon I'm going stir crazy here.

    Just remember that moving to a warmed climate means that it will be too hot to run outdoors during the summer. There is no perfect climate.

    Maybe you should try moving to a warmer climate? It seems the far north has been especially inhospitable this year! I cannot imagine all that snow in APRIL, even though I was born and raised in Michigan. I can remember one bad snowstorm April 10, 1981, that caught us off guard there in North Branch, Michigan! Hang in there, spring will come! emoticon

    My hubby is from MN and doesn't want to go back to those kinds of wintr. But it reminds me of how often it gets too hot here in FL to be outdoors. I guess each section of the country has it's own weather issues.

    Guess we have missed a nasty winter BUT are in the process of coming home for the summer after wintering in the south!! Fran has some wonderful suggestions with walking and working out. There are many chair type exercises one can do when there isn't some equipment available. Take a gander at all the fitness articles and videos. You might be pleasantly surprised. We will be joining the masses in another week!

    Even though we are having way to much snow for April you can walk in the hallway. walk at the mall, and there are strength exercises on sparks that you just need you to do . The nice weather will come, so that you can run again,; in the mean time find things for exercise that don't cost you money.

    Try doing your runs in a shopping mall.

    My niece, who voluntarily moved to Minnesota, has been whining about this on facebook since it started. And we are all giving her the BooHoo replies she deserves. emoticon emoticon
